Ronak Ghorbani speaks on ‘How does media determine what makes a man’ at the White Ribbon Conference!


 

A Feminist, grad student, writer and music lover, we are excited to have Ronak Ghorbani join us for the ‘What Makes a Man’ White Ribbon Conference at Ryerson University. Since her first year as an undergraduate student at Ryerson’s School of Journalism, Ronak has worked with alternative campus press. Whether it was reporting for the Ryerson Free Press (a politically progressive campus paper) or starting the online radio show Rebel Grrrl’s Music, Ronak found solace in alt-media as it was a space for free expression. She has written for publications such as NOW Magazine, Exclaim! and rabble.ca and is a former co-Editor-in-Chief of feminist magazine McClung’s. Her research into the world of feminism and social media has been featured in the Toronto Star and this fall Ronak started her masters in the Ryerson/York University joint program in Communication and Culture. Ronak is currently the arts editor for Shameless Magazine, Canada’s independent voice for smart, strong, sassy young women and trans youth. You can follow her on Twitter at @ronakgee.
